“2012 Liquid Chemical Categorization Updates”

Interim Rule; Delay of Effective Date. September 16, 2013.

“ …. The interim rule provides new information about approved substances and their categorizations, but would not change which substances are approved or how each substance is categorized. Updated information is of value to shippers and to the owners and operators of U.S.-flag tank and bulk cargo vessels in any waters and most foreign-flag tank and oceangoing bulk cargo vessels in U.S. waters. This interim rule promotes the Coast Guard’s maritime safety and stewardship missions.”
